Posted on: 22/5/2019 9:00PM

The Australian Ballet’s gigantic, award-winning, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland©, returns to Melbourne this year for a limited, exclusive season from 8 to 22 June at Arts Centre Melbourne. 


“Amazing”…”Magical”…”Sensational” are just some of the ways audiences described Christopher Wheeldon’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland© when it swept through Melbourne and Sydney in 2017. This sell-out hit is the biggest production undertaken by The Australian Ballet. 350+ costumes, 27 sets changes, a tap dancing mad hatter, an eerily disembodied Cheshire Cat manipulated by puppeteers, a slinky Caterpillar with 16 feet in bejewelled pointe shoes and dancing playing cards are all included in Christopher Wheeldon’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland©. With all the action on stage enhanced by the most impressive optical illusions, immersive digital projections, the audience will feel as if they are falling down the rabbit hole with Alice into Wonderland. 


Created for The Royal Ballet in 2011, this production has enraptured audiences around the world. Wheeldon’s ballet is full of all the wit and charm of the original story by Lewis Carroll, as it follows Alice into a topsy-turvy world where nothing is quite as it seems.
